  1. “…but it’s ultimately for the best.”

    I’m not exactly sure what “the best” means in most situations where I hear this being said. But the phrase alone upsets me.

    How often do these situations happen in your tutoring? Admittedly, I have a low tolerance for it, which is why my gig helping kids write college essays didn’t last so long.

    1. Thankfully, sessions like this have been rare in my experience. I have a handful of lovely students–graduate and undergraduate–who come see me on a regular basis and have similar investments as I do. Working with them is always a breeze. But when I do have sessions like these, I am thoroughly disgruntled and grumpy for the rest of the day. Sigh.
